Product Description

From hit songs to bumper stickers, Jesus is trending high wherever you look. But popular culture's "Americanized" portraits (e.g., Guru Jesus, Braveheart Jesus, Dr. Phil Jesus, Free-Range Jesus) fall decidedly short and cannot save. Darling hearkens back to the New Testament God-man who rose triumphant over the grave. 160 pages, softcover. Baker.

Publisher's Description

From hit songs to bumper stickers to eye-black, Jesus is trending high wherever you look. But at the end of the day, many "try Jesus" and come away disappointed in the experience. That's because the Jesus of popular culture looks much more like us than the God-man who appeared in the flesh two thousand years ago. We've got Guru Jesus, Braveheart Jesus, Dr. Phil Jesus, Free-Range Jesus, and plenty more imposters that feed into our selfish desires. The problem is, they don't have the power to save us or transform us into new creations. Luckily, it doesn't have to be that way.

The Original Jesus calls readers back to the Jesus who demands our worship--the potter who molds us, the clay. Seekers, skeptics, and sojourners in the way of faith will see Jesus for who he really is: God in the flesh, calling us to surrender our very lives that we may truly live. Foreword by Russell Moore.
